Berto's Test Tank
I have beem trolling around a bit on the site and have learned a lot and seen that there are many knowledgable people here. I have finally decided to say thanks, introduce myself and start a journal on here.
I grew up with community tanks and had aquariums years ago, never planted though. So I decided to dive in and get the ball rolling. April 4th I set up the tank and have been waiting to add some fish in. Yesterday I chose to drop a few in as it seems my numbers looked good to go.
So what I have going is
Flourite Red mixed with Eco-Complete
Ehiem Pro4+ 600
Finnex Planted+ 247
Aqueon air pump with fine stone (rarely turn it on)
White translucent backing
6 Harlequin Rasbora
large piece driftwood attached to slate
2 smaller pieces of driftwood
I plan on adding some shrimp possibly today. I am starting to grow some algae and would rather start building a clean up crew, sooner than later.
As I said, this is my first planted tank and I am calling the test tank. I hope it all works out but I am testing and learning from all this.
I look forward to updating and seeing how it all goes.
Oh also the window blinds are never opened and I may buy some curtains or blackout shades in the future.
wish me luck, I will need it
